I'm almost six months in and today was one of the loudest days yet... I thought it was supposed to improve over time :-/ Jun 23, 2017 at 2:42 AM

        There'll be bumps along the way, sometimes you'll be fighting against strong currents, others will be smooth sailing. I've learned to not compare myself to others; T is so unique. 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, they journey is very individual.

        I'm glad that you are always so positive @Paul10, despite your own T. I think what makes it tough for me is that, in the beginning, I told myself, "Just hang in there, it'll probably be gone by six months". Now it looks like I'll have to change that to "by the end of the year", and I'm not even sure I can believe that.

        It's best to avoid timeframes I find. I just remind myself how nice it will be when it does resolve. We just have to find the positives in every day while we're on the journey. It might sound odd but I also think about people who spend 20, 30 years in prison or even on death row for crimes they didn't commit, and how inspirational their stories are when they come out. If they can 'do their time', so can we.

      Today T is the loudest it's been in a long time. No recent noise exposure, so hopefully it's just stress...

      Maybe it's just because there's more ambient noise in summer, but T has certainly been less noticeable the past week... Hope it continues.

      First few months are like navigating a minefield --- worried that every new noise/activity can somehow make it worse.

      Woke up to an earache and spike, followed by fire alarm at work. Come on.
